About The Book

As the clouds of World War II gathered, Gertrude travels to join her father in India and to find her mother. She meets Richard, a naval lieutenant joining his destroyer in Singapore, and they fall in love. After spending a whirlwind week in Colombo, she learns that his ship has sunk. Devastated, she goes for a ride and is thrown off the pony only to be found by Yuvraj. She is badly concussed and thinks that the turban wearing Yuvraj is Richard. She submits herself to him and births a son who goes off with his father.

Seeking vengeance for Richard's loss, she joins the Women's Army Corps, becomes involved with the war in Burma, and is captured. She meets a remorseful Yuvraj who helps her escape, only to lose him to death.

How does she deal with the loss of the three males in her life?
